The Loop's NFL picks: Week 17


The Loop's NFL picks: Week 17
Giants AT Vikings (-6 1/2)


Vikings coach Brad Childress, trying to rouse his team after a devastating loss to Atlanta, channeled President-elect Obama, saying 'Our destiny won't be written for us, it will be written by us.' Afterward, that destiny likely will be dropped by Adrian Peterson. Pick: Giants by 3

Dolphins AT Jets (-3)

Jets defensive end Shaun Ellis raised eyebrows Sunday by tossing a giant snow boulder into the Seattle stands after Seahawks fans pelted him with snowballs. Witnesses said it was the first accurate throw made by a Jet in about a month. Pick: Dolphins by 4

Bears AT Texans (EVEN)

The Bears overcame subzero wind chill and kept their playoff hopes alive by beating Green Bay on 'Monday Night Football.' It was so cold at Soldier Field, it took ESPN's Tony Kornheiser nearly an hour to coax his combover to come out from hiding in his ear. Pick: Texans by 6

Lions AT Packers (-9)

Lions coach Rod Marinelli, under fire as his team faces the infamy of 0-16, fired back at a Detroit newspaper columnist who mocked him at Sunday's postgame press conference. Fans across the nation were shocked by the exchange as they had no idea Detroit still had newspapers. Pick: Packers by 21

BRONCOS AT Chargers (-8 1/2)

The winner of this contest earns the AFC West title and the No. 4 playoff seed. To make sure the game goes off without a hitch, league officials have assigned Ed Hochuli to referee a wild-card game Sunday at Guantanamo Bay. Pick: Chargers by 3

Patriots AT BILLS (+6 1/2)

A drunken New England fan was arrested after running onto the field Sunday and tackling Patriots linebacker Junior Seau. He could face severe jail time, as Massachusetts has some of the nation's toughest laws against abuse of the elderly. Pick: Patriots by 10

Seahawks AT Cardinals (-6)

The Cardinals have been outscored 82-21 in the two weeks since they clinched the NFC West title. The only person who lost more ground during that time is Norm Coleman. Pick: Seahawks by 3

Browns AT Steelers (-10 1/2)

Browns quarterback Brady Quinn reportedly was punched in the face by teammate Shaun Smith during a confrontation last week in the Browns' weight room. Cleveland fans were stunned by the news, as they had no idea the Browns had a weight room. Pick: Steelers by 28

Titans AT Colts (+3)

The Colts' former home came crashing down Saturday as Indianapolis' RCA Dome was imploded. The only way the stadium could have hit the ground faster would have been if it were handed to Adrian Peterson. Pick: Titans by 5

OTHER GAMES

Rams at Falcons (-15): Falcons by 24

Cowboys at Eagles (-1 1/2): Eagles by 3

Jaguars at Ravens (-12 1/2): Ravens by 7
